Beautiful Gardening Gift

What is not widely known about me is that I love a bit of horticulture. I have a real affinity for plants and nurturing from seed to fully fledged joy giving plant. So I was bowled over by a project recently shared by the lovely Anne-Marie Maclean at Traigh Papercrafting. Seriously projects don't get much better than this and although the gardening theme was really something which caught my eye this gift box style could be adapted for gifting so many other things.

Imagine the smile on my face when I actually received the real thing through the post! I was so bowled over and set straight to putting it to use, planting the seeds the same day.

Anne-Marie is so talented at making things look so simple and unfussy but I know that there is a lot of work to be done to create that look. She also picks up some fabulous dies and stamps mainly from independent outlets and she just inspires me so much with her style and her shopping habits.

I hope I've taken enough photos to give an idea of how wonderful this project is but if you want a tutorial then go to Anne-Marie's blog for a full written tutorial with pictures and if you have any questions I'm sure she will be delighted to respond to them in the comments section of her blog. If you want to see more of this then head to my video where I gush about it.

I can't thank Anne-Marie enough for this gift, the most heartwarming of all was the seeds for Stocks. I had forgotten that my mum loved stocks with their heady evening fragrance, she loved to grow them near her back door so she got a waft of the aroma when she opened it and she would cut them and pop them in water too. It brought a little tear to my eye remembering and I can't wait for them to come to flower.

Have a great weekend.
